    Are these good to use? Might be an option if I wanted my subwoofer in another part of the room?

    I believe some folk on our forum use wireless audio adapters. I have no experience with them.

    I think @CMonster has used one. I can’t speak to the performance.

    Should work for low frequencies, however pay attention to the low frequency extension specification. On some cheaper stuff, I've seen not so great LF extension for some reason. Latency could also be an issue, so see if they spec that, although at low frequencies you would need a lot of latency to make a significant phase difference.

    I have the version sold by Outlaw Audio, the same one CMonster had and it works really well.
    I’ve used it in a couple of different ways.

    I initially used it to send two channel audio from the preouts in my living room to the receiver on the back patio. It worked amazingly well.

    In the current setup it’s used to feed signal to my sub wirelessly. The transmitter and receivers are pretty close to one another and again, no problems.

    How is the wireless model 3 from outlaw I see it's $69 versus the 119

    The OAW transmitter is no longer available. The $69 price is for a single receiver for people that already have a transmitter.

    So what is available now? The version four you talk about

    The version 4 is all that’s available from Outlaw with a transmitter and receiver at the moment. There are other similar systems on Amazon and such. Many are less expensive. I just don’t have any experience with them.
